Omni Royal Orleans
The Omni Royal Orleans occupies a prime position in the very heart of New Orleans' French Quarter. From the timelessly elegant lobby, traditional full-service barber shop and complimentary shoe shine, to the fitness centre, the fabulous rooftop swimming pool and the observation deck overlooking the city, the Omni combines old-world charm with 21st century amenities. By day you can relax with a refreshing drink in the poolside bar, while the award-winning Rib Room and Bar, famous for its 'washbucket martini', is an excellent option for dinner after perusing the vibrant streets of New Orleans.
A variety of room types are offered here to suit all preferences and budgets, including Petite rooms, Courtyard Queen rooms, Deluxe rooms, Premier rooms (with or without a balcony and Jacuzzi), and a selection of suites. Classically decorated and elegantly appointed, each of the rooms offers a fully-stocked minibar, a coffee maker, safe, hairdryer, Wi-Fi access, a cable TV and individual climate control.
Suites offer additional space and luxury, with separate sitting areas featuring sofa beds, making them ideal for families. Some can also be connected to create additional bedrooms.
The hotel is situated on the corner of St Louis at Royal, just one block away from Bourbon St and within walking distance of the riverfront, as well as lots of shops and traditional Southern restaurants. If you'd like to venture a bit further out to the Garden District, you can take the iconic Streetcar from the French Quarter.
Food and Drink
Standards are high at this property, with a selection of fine dining options to choose from. The Rib Room features classic and contemporary dishes, most of which are cooked in a rotisserie. La Riviera, the poolside bar located on the rooftop, is a fantastic place for some pre-dinner cocktails during the summer, while La Touché bar is popular among the locals.
In-room dining is available 24 hours a day. Half a block away is K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen - one of the top restaurants in New Orleans. The restaurant's owner, Paul Prudhomme, was one of America's first celebrity chefs, specialising in Cajun cuisine.
The Omni Sensational Kids programme means that upon check-in, children receive a backpack full of entertaining games and goodies themed around health and nutrition. The backpack includes an activity book with healthy snack recipes and fun games, a twisty tomato straw, memory match-up cards and crayons. Kids also receive milk and cookies delivered to their room on the first night.
In terms of accommodation, all of the suites have a sofa bed for additional guests, with some also able to interconnect. The Premier rooms can also come with twin double or queen beds to suit families.
Facilities and Activities
Enjoy the rooftop pool and observation deck, which are open all year round (the pool is heated in the winter). There's also a rooftop fitness centre should you wish to keep active during your stay.
The hotel offers a number of ADA accessible rooms, featuring larger doors, roll-in showers, grab bars, lowered sinks and visual alarms.
The Omni Royal Orleans really sets the benchmark on high quality hotels in the city. It’s hard to find a better hotel with the same level of Southern charm and character.
